If you are tracking the GBPUSD, by the technical structure of the pair, I see the likelihood of a southward pullback to a horizontal support around the 1.35970 area in the early part of next week and with the possibility of testing the support trendline (red) on the weekly time frame before a northward turnaround. So, it is better to wait for such a pullback before looking for a short-term swing trading opportunity to the north.

I may be wrong. Trade safe and prosper.

{quote} I use swings as a primary structure to trade. However one must define a swing. What is the definition of a swing?
Good Question:

Swing is: SQRT(2)*100*FRAME_MODULATOR*PRICE,

EURGBP price now is 0.8900, frame daily so MODU=1 for fast swing; MODU=2 for patient swing

so minimum swing is: SQRT(2)*100*1*0.9800 = 141*1*0.9800 = ? ?


good thread

I think most traders understand swings, definitions may vary, but the structure is pretty basic. Entries and exits within swings gets a bit tricky

Swings are basically used hand in hand with supply and demand - swings provide direction and SD give us entries and exits

I agree. You know KeenPips, I see on the daily swing down to the key support (on the weekly) as you mentioned above, that's why I entered with sell limit order at BRN 1.3850. What d'you think guys?...Click to Enlarge

{quote} Swings can be isolated according to relative size. Here the pink swings are the major pullbacks and the orange swings are the minor pullbacks. The impulse swing occurred as each new low was made according to the relative sized swing. If one just looks at the pink (majors) then it can be seen that the most recent pink impulse did not result in a convincing new low. The unconfirmed pink "swing high" occurred at the highest orange swing high after breaking through the lower orange swing high. I submit that by structuring swings relatively then...
That is an interesting idea.

KeenPips Mar 11, 2018 12:04am | Post# 12

That's a trade you may take for a small profit. The bigger profit will come with taking a long trade around the support trendline or a short trade if price action flip the trendline as resistance, say on a daily or four-hourly closing basis.

Trade safe and prosper.

The argument about the definition of swings is not the focus of this thread imo. How you swing trade is a more beneficial focus, which the OP clearly stated as the focus from the onset.

Rules in getting into this swing trade
1. Dynamic area of support and resistance
2. Fibo rejections at 61.8%
3. Candlestick pin bar
4. Previous support now working as resistance
5. Trendline

I agree. Technicaly its all right and as well another confirmation by COT. Intitutions are adding more shorts positions on GBP. GBP should be week for time being.
USD is strong now for while till USD indwx it supply area where its heading. GU should be short.

My sell limit was not executed last week. I will move sell limit to 1.38882 or lowr

Swing Trading is a short-term trading method that can be used when trading stocks and options. Whereas Day Trading positions last less than one day, Swing Trading positions typically last two to six days, but may last as long as two weeks.

That is right. What Im seeing. Is that market makers broke thru low where on 3.1.2018 and then took market higher to get stop losses of break out traders.
Its early to go long. I believe 1300 and than 1285 is reachable.

My take on EJ as a high-timeframe swing trader, - I would sell when price hit the area of 137.00 - 137.00, and buy when price at the area 125.00-127.00 (based on weekly chart, supported by monthly). Dont know when this will happen.
